60. LADY MARINA 209'10"
While the owner certainly commissioned his yacht to relax in the Med, he also intended to run his company while onboard. The master suite naturally has an office for this reason, equipped with satellite Internet service. But even when Lady Marina is being used for pleasure, that satellite connection comes in handy, as we understand a few regular guests enjoy downloadng and printing out the latest world news on a daily basis.

61. SHAHNAZ 209'9"
In recent years this yacht had her bridge deck extended to make more room for guests and the stern modified to accommodate crew better. She’s a Saudi-owned yacht.
Y: 1991; B: Cantieri Nuovi Liguri, Italy; N: Studio de Jorio/Vincenzo Ruggiero; H: Steel; E: 2/2,250-hp Deutz-MWMs

62. SIRAN 208'9"
Siran calls Monaco home, though her owner travels to both sides of the Atlantic for business. The yacht will soon undergo a five-meter (16-foot) extension at Feadship’s newly acquired facility in Makkum, Holland.
Y: 1992; B: Feadship/De Vries Scheepsbouw, Holland; N: Jon Bannenberg/De Voogt Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1,600-hp Caterpillars

63. CEDAR SEA II 208'8"
The Mouawad family, which runs the renowned jewelry company Mondera, owns Cedar Sea II. They have hosted benefit parties and even fashion shows aboard.

64. SOKAR 208'3"
Mohammed al-Fayed, the owner of London’s famous Harrod’s department store, is selling his yacht for $30 million. Two key areas are the dining room on the bridge deck, complete with doors that open the area to an aft deck, and a security room on the main deck.
Y: 1990; B: Codecasa, Italy; N: Vincenzo Ruggiero; H: Steel; E: 2/2,814-hp Wartsila Nohabs

65. FORCE BLUE 206'0"
Roy Speer, cofounder of the Home Shopping Network, sold his expedition yacht earlier this year to the Italian Formula One team owner Flavio “Flav” Briatore. Gossip pages from England to South Africa were abuzz in May with word that Briatore had been seen with model Naomi Campbell aboard in Sardinia. Force Blue will charter after a refit.
Y: 2002; B: Royal Denship, Denmark; N: Tom Fexas Yacht Design; H: Steel; E: 2/2,000-hp Caterpillars

66. NORTHERN STAR 206'0"
Northern Star has had yacht-watchers worldwide salivating over her expedition-like looks ever since the first photos were taken of her earlier this year. She was conceived to cruise both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, and her hull was strengthened for navigating in ice.
Y: 2005; B: Lürssen, Germany; N: Espen Øino Naval Architects; H: Steel; E: 2/1,849-hp Caterpillars

67. LADY LOLA 205'5"
Lady Lola reportedly sold a few months ago to a European, who has her available for charter for $330,000 per week. No word on his other plans for the yacht, though we hope he keeps the sundeck’s artificial-grass-covered teeing area that raises on her sundeck at the touch of a button. The yacht totes flag-topped buoys to serve as the holes.
Y: 2002; B: Oceanco, South Africa/Holland; N: The “A” Group–Monte Carlo SAM; H: Steel; E: 2/2,000-hp Caterpillars

68. APOGEE 205'0"
Darwin Deason, head of Affiliated Computer Services in Texas, told Vanity Fair he spent $66 million to build this yacht. So what’d he put onboard? A Wurlitzer jukebox in the dancing area, a.k.a. the Apogee Club Bar; a 22-foot-long bar; and five guest staterooms, each named for a different Greek island in honor of the heritage of his girlfriend, Katerina Panos.
Y: 2003; B: Codecasa, Italy; N: Builder; H: Steel; E: 2/2,260-hp Caterpillars

69. ATTESSA III 205'0"
The long-awaited refit of this yacht wrapped up in the spring. A fire had severely damaged her when she was known as Aviva; American industrialist Dennis Washington bought her and took her to his own yard in British Columbia for the work.
Y: 1998; B: Feadship/Royal Van Lent, Holland; N: De Voogt International; H: Steel; E: 2/2,200-hp Caterpillars
